Visibly-incensed campaigner said he was registering a symbolic protest outside the CM House when authorities arrested him. “I appeal the masses to go outside CM House and dump their litter so the man at the helm of affairs could fall sick and inhale the foul smell that every Karachiite do on daily basis.”

He vowed to expose “false propaganda” against ‘Fix it” campaign and those conspiring against it.

Khan thanked PTI leaders Imran Ismail, Khurram Sherzaman, Faisal Vawda and others for extending support to him.

PTI leaders had staged a sit-in outside Governor House yesterday against arrest of Alamgir Khan.

Alamgir Khan made headlines and gathered huge praise from Karachiites after he recently kicked off a campaign ‘Sleeping Beauty’ to highlight misgovernance in Karachi.

Under the campaign, the team initially spray painted face of Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah near potholes and missing gutter caps with a message “Sleeping Beauty… fix it.”
